The new Awesomatix A800 is hitting the stores shortly and soon many new lucky owners will enjoy it.
It is a departure of the shaft driven layout following now the trend of 2 belt driven cars.
Although a proven choice, Awesomatix has chosen to explore even further the posibilities to improve weight distribution and maximize the performance potential of the car.
By placing the spur gear on the right side (battery side) of the car, it allows to put the motor by 2mm further to the centre of the car as well as give direct access to the spur gear without the requirement of removing belts or upper deck. More on this later.
The entire transmission has been designed with the goal to be the lightest and most efficient possible. Low friction belts and pulleys help to achieve these goals as well as better reliability is achieved through the use of specific materials and well thought design.
Three chassis options are available. Here you can see the two of them. The one on top is a very nice aluminium hard anodized scratch resistant chassis with a lot of milling and a 3D shape where a concave effect is visible at the bottom of the chassis. This has proven to perform very well in many different conditions on carpet racing.The carbon chassis is a standard design with symmetrical milling on both sides of the main axis to produce even flex characteristics
Schumacher is pleased to announce top Russian Off Road driver Dmitry Malyshko has joined the team.
"I am very excited to join Team Schumacher. I want to thank everyone at the company for this opportunity!
I am really excited to race with the new cars at major international races like EOS Series, Winter Jumps, Russian GP2016 and Euros! "

First pictures of what is very close to a production RR10 World GT Chassis. This chassis is the culmination of all the feedback from racers and customers that we had the opportunity to talk to via email, phone, forums and social media and the result is our interpretation of what we think is a better World GT.
More steering and less traction rolling was our goal and I believe we have achieved a better car than what is readily available in the market. We took special care and attention with the details and materials selected, which we will release more info on as we get closer to setting a product delivery date and pre-order for those of you that want to reserve this very special kit.
